Arizona ‘Karen’ Has Mental Health Issues, Husband Claims

Videos by OutKick

Arizona ‘Karen’ has mental health issues, according to her husband Bob Harrian. You might remember ‘Karen’, real name Tamara Harrian, going nuts at a Phoenix Shell gas station over the weekend where she told a Native American woman, Karina Rodriguez, to “go back to Mexico.” That led to ‘Karen’ grabbing Rodriguez by the arm and then we got one of the most beautiful slaps across the face in Facebook video history.

It was clean, the audio was great and it appears to be in 1280. Bob Harrian can’t stop apologizing to Karina for what his wife has done. “Karina, I don’t know what to say. I’m just so sorry,” Harrian said, in an emotional message to the woman on the receiving end of the tirade in the video. “I’m just so sorry that this happened. You never walked into that store thinking something like this was going to happen. I understand, and I’m sorry.”

?: Greg ConnThis went down Saturday at a Phoenix gas station, where a middle-aged white woman stormed inside demanding to be helped after her pump outside was apparently not working. An argument ensued between her and a younger woman who was being helped at the counter.While you don't hear it initially, the guy recording says he just heard 'Karen' tell the other woman she needs to go back to her country. She also tells the clerk — on camera — not to serve the woman.Eventually, both women got in each other's faces, and after "Karen" got handsy, the other woman slapped her square on the jaw. "Karen" stormed out in a huff.The overreacting, racist behavior we've seen plenty of lately — but this outcome was much different. Maybe even … refreshing? Sure, let's go with that.BTW, we've reached out to the owners of this convenience store and they tell us this white woman — who initially ID'd herself as a manager — is not employed by them, and is no longer welcome at any of their locations nationwide.Tmz
